Vishvas News (New Delhi): A board showing the picture of Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is going viral on social media. Through the post it is being claimed that the Chief Minister of Delhi has got this board installed in Kirtinagar Industrial Area of Delhi informing about the installation of ten dustbins. Vishvas News investigated and found the post to be edited with the intention of spreading propaganda against the Delhi Government and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Claim
